So a few of my teammates & I decided at the last minute to dress up like penguins....I know what you're thinking. Anyway, I ordered a penguin costume from Amazon & thought a miracle would happen & it would come the next day....um. no. So I went to Walmart with a vision of what I wanted to do but knew it needed to be done by the next day. At Walmart I found an over-sized hooded sweatshirt for about $5! Yes, $5! Love Walmart but have never purchased an article of clothing there. I could NOT believe how cheap!!!! I also bought a REALLY hideous pair of fuzzy slippers in the kids section that JUST fit my little mexican feet. They had a huge-a** massive pink bow on the back that I was ready to cut off before I even checked out. They were black...they were fuzzy....they worked.
This is my partner in crime. Do you believe she actually asked us if she looked like a penguin....LOL. This cost NOTHING. I was blowing up her phone the night before with pics as I progressed through my costume & I never got a response....she was sleeping. Anyway her & her wonderful aide came up with this!!!! She used white, black, yellow & orange butcher paper!!!!! They even covered up a baseball hat with paper! Her outfit was the BOMB! Here are activities we did for our little Rockhoppers. We all had a really STRESSFUL week of testing & they really deserved a celebration. It also happened to be the same time for our monthly AR party. We set a goal each month and if they obtain their AR points they get to participate.
Now onto our 2013 100th day. If you didn't see my previous post check it out here.
Every year I have my students wear something to represent 100. I show them previous students and what they did to get their wheels turning. I always tell them I don't want to know what they did...I want to be surprised. I love the creativity. I can tell some of these moms are definitely on Pinterest!
here! Each student will get 3 pics each once I get to Meier to print.

Top right is mine...you know the one that the D-bag gave me a bad rating because I left a credit page for the hard working graphic artists...SHAME.ON.ME! Bottom right is a 100th day flippy book from Christina Bainbridge. from Bunting, Books and Bainbridge..love her & all her flippy books.
No Morning Work
Read to the Class
Show and Tell
Write a Love Note
Sit by a Friend
Extra Reading Time
I also added 10 additional ones that we came up with together which are:
Double fuzzy day (They get double fuzzies for a whole day)
Time Keeper (sets the timer & carries it around during Daily 5 or any timed activity)
Hug Mrs. Dillard (don't think I am horrible...if they didn't need a coupon I would have one hanging on each limb...not kidding)
Choose 1st for indoor recess (they fight over certain games)
Be Mrs. Dillard's Spy (don't asked me but one of their favorite reward coupons is teacher spy)
Bring a Game From Home (board game or any kind of card game to play during indoor recess)
Choose 1st for Daily 5
Extra Classroom Job (they LOVE helping so I give them an extra job since they all have at least one)
Borrow a fuzzy friend (they are obsessed with my stuffed animals in the library...they get to hold onto one of my animals for the day)
Choose Daily 5 Word Work (they get to choose what we do for word work that day)
I will allow them to give me one coupon/day but it has to be BY THE BELL. That means get here, get to business. I will only take one each of certain ones. If someone beats them to it then they have to wait. This should get us through February.
I will be making a parent coupon book for my students to give to their parent's as gifts. I will put about 10 different things (clean my room, feed the dog, no arguing, etc) and I will also leave some blank for them to fill out themselves.
The first 5 to leave me a comment with their EMAIL will get the coupons for FREE!
